Launched in 1994, this FASEB Science Research Conference (SRC) was the first to focus specifically on mobile DNA and its impact on genomes. This year’s conference will celebrate the notable progress in understanding transposon biology and evolution, their contribution to human diseases and normal physiological processes, and their widespread use as tools for basic science research and clinical applications.
The conference will bring together researchers investigating all aspects of transposable element biology in any organism, ranging from the role transposons play in structural and functional genomics to their causative impact on and therapeutic application to human diseases. Due to the multidisciplinary nature and relevance of our field, we also welcome the participation of researchers interested in aging, cancer, DNA repair, epigenetics, bioinformatics, neurobiology, immunology, evolutionary biology, and developmental biology.
*Registration for this conference is now open.
